Nokia today announced the arrival of the Lumia 1020 in Singapore.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is able to produce images previously only possible on digital cameras, thanks to Nokia's PureView technology.
It includes a second-generation 41 megapixel sensor and six-lens Carl Zeiss optics with optical image stabilization - allowing people to capture, edit and share professional quality photos and videos.
A new application called Nokia Pro Camera will enable people to shoot an image first, and then zoom in later to discover and re-discover stories that contain more details from the original image shot.
Nokia claims that Lumia 1020 is the most versatile digital camera, with its dual-capture feature allowing simultaneous high resolution 38 megapixel images to be taken, and creates a 5 megapixel picture.
Nokia Lumia 1020 also promises to capture clear pictures in low light conditions, and blur-free videos with stereo sound. The Nokia Rich Recording feature handles sound pressure levels six times louder than conventional smartphone microphones.
Vlasta Berka, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Nokia Pan Asia said: "The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the first smartphone to exceed many standalone digital cameras in terms of image quality-capture and ensures users always have that perfect photo - day or night."
Price and availability Starting from Saturday, 5 October 2013, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will be available in yellow, white and black at a price of $999 at Nokia Stores and Nokia Solutions Partners, and will come with the Nokia Camera Grip (original price: $98) included as a special bundle pack for free. All 3 local operators will also be retailing the device with attractive data plans.
